with a minor in urban planning. the reason why i would like to be a part of the balboa park station citizen's advisory committee is because i would like to represent the voice of the community, more specifically in the development that is occurring in the area. i would also like to assist in figuring out how to keep the community voice involved and accountability with the city agencies involved and impact to make deadlines and [speaker not understood] commitments. and then, so, also john avalos is a huge advocate for our community, but it's important to have the community involved. >> thank you, ms. garcia. >>> thank you very much. >> and next we will hear mr. walker. if you would like to speak today. and are there any other applicants that were not listed? okay. oh, i'm sawyer, i thought you were not here today. >>> i'm not alex. i'm henry [speaker not understood]. >> great. so, henry, we'll hear you right after william. >>> good afternoon, chair and supervisors. my name is william walker and thank you for hearing my application today at the rules committee. i'm the student trustee at city
transportation including balboa park, k line, the phelan loop area where the 49 terminates and the 8x. i also worked for five years at the los angeles county metropolitan transportation authority in the board office where metro r which is their third sales tax that provides transportation revenue for transit projects and they're looking to accelerate those projects currently with a new bond measure this upcoming year. i worked with a lot of the directors that compiled a lot of those different projects. and my first transportation job was actually as a high cooler at muni in the service planning department. so, i have a lot of transportation expertise. i work with student government on city college of san francisco and i also just have an immense desire to see a lot more transportation improvements in the balboa park corridor. i have a great relationship with john avalos, supervisor avalos and i continue to work with trustee issues. that is the bulk of where a lot of riders are. we need a light rail [speaker not understood]. the second highest transportation [inaudible] outside of downtown. s
neighborhood center movement program and also a representative for united players at balboa high school. firstful allied like to begin with thank you for going to the process of creating the m-o-u. myself and my piers at the movement program have gone and educated -- been educated on the m-o-u. . i feel there are a few missing details such as the school resource officers being involved at the school community by helping put together programs on campus and/or being involved as a regular on the school campus. * i feel the youth know the officer more as a person it would create a bigger sense of security and it's the goal of mutual respect is to be met, i feel that the youth should see that the officer is putting in some initiative to really get to know the person and to make them feel protected instead of feeling being profiled or judged. the person i have gotten to know a few officers as people and i have a higher respect for them because i know them and i understand that they are people and they're only here to do their job. that's important for all youth to understand and to youth. ano

have a video i'd like to show. today i took a tour of balboa park station which i use very frequently. balboa park station is a station that 10,000 people a day plus use to go to city college or get to downtown. it's our biggest transit hub outside of the downtown area of san francisco, in the whole bay area region. and it is completely inadequate. it looks like a hub that you would expect to find behind the eastern block -- an eastern block country back in the 1980s. it has not had any real substantial investment in years. i pushed a little bit to get some curb ramps which is the tip of the iceberg of what is actually needed. this is a video i'd like to show of what the conditions are and i hope, colleagues, you can actually take about 15 seconds to look at this. this is what people face every day and it's a very dangerous situation that we have. john, if you could.

, measuring and defining safe schools, on a personal note i attended balboa high school many years ago. and, you know, looking at the bars and the gates, i feel like the school is a prison. by bringing police officers to a school like balboa, we run the risk of making it feel even more like a prison. we have to remember our schools are not prisons. police should be in schools to allow kids to feel safe. this can only come from building great relationships with our youth and to do that we need to ensure there is ongoing proper training for police officers and educators and our resource to do all that is expected of them. so, the question are how will we measure the students are feeling safe, not threatened? it's not about the numbers of youth being arrested, but numbers of youth that feel safe and feel free to pursue learning. the number of youth that are referred to appropriate programs from after school job training to family services. so, how will youth, educators and parent community educators be involved in the process and evaluation? everyone needs to have a say in the process in order
school just adjacent to the balboa park station. i am also a member of the board of directors of the ocean avenue association, the cbd that mr. weaver is the executive director of. and i'm currently serving as treasurer of the ocean avenue association. i think it's fair to say that ocean avenue corridor has turned a corner. we've seen tremendous improvements in the area and i think now is precisely the time to focus on the balboa park station and all that that can offer to the entire community, city college, [speaker not understood], and all the residents in the area. i bring an open mind and a commitment to service and i would very much like to be a part of this committee. i do notice that i had applied for vacancies 6 and 9. i don't know if they've been filled already, but i also am a heavy and regular muni and bart user and if those are the available seats, i would be happy to move my application around as necessary. thank you. >> just to broaden it, i mean, as you say, you are the father of a student who goes to school so you could hit seat 4. but seat 8 as well, families
rely unique scenery. until next time, get out and play! >> the renovation of balboa park, the oldest in the city of san francisco, and now it is the newest part in the city of san francisco. through our partnership, and because of public investment from the two thousand eight fund, we are celebrating a renewal and an awakening of this park. we have it safer, happier, more joyous. >> 3, 2, 1, [laughter] =--[applause] >> it is a great resource for families, to have fun in the city, recreation. >> this is an amazing park. we have not revitalized it without public and private investment. the critical piece of the process of this renovation was that it was all about the community. we reached out to everyone in this community. we love this park dearly and they all had thoughts and ideas and they wanted to bring their own creativity and their personality to bear on the design. what you see is what the community wanted. these ideas all came from the residents of this community. as a result, there is a sense of ownership, pride and responsibility that goes along with what is going to be an ex
francisco standpoint, the red is downtown; balboa park, it shows all of the areas prior to the development area where we should focus a growth. fit overlaps almost 100 percent the areas where we have done planning over the last 10 years the city works closely with the staff to make sure that the growth projections are basically what we have been working on on all of our planning efforts. the strategy confirms the planning we have been doing over the last decade, ensuring that we are doing our part of on the region. looking at policy city to be strengthened. including an update to the transportation element and other elements of the general plant. we also know there are more planning than is to be done. in terms of the region housing needs assessment,or allocations, the processes correlated with the housing element. every city receives from the region and amount of housing that is supposed to produce over the next eight years for people of all income levels. the housing element is the way we proved to the state that we have the zoning to accommodate the growth. the arena processes gone for
hard to support the balboa theater and the foundation has stepped in really to help our neighborhood show strong support for it, but also at the four star theater and chinese american movie series. it's one of the only one that still continues to show chinese movies in our city and i am helping in the process to renovate the aland der theater to make sure that we restore but also maintain a small neighborhood 38 existing there. also across the city communities are stepping up to support theaters like the roxy in the inner mission and the red victorian in the haight ash bury as well and i hope the area is supportive of other efforts too and i look forward to working with the theater foundation and how the city can support more of the neighborhood 38s. they serve as an anchor to the communities and drive economic opportunities in the neighborhood and i look forward to working with you and supporting them. and in light of the big earthquake we're anticipating in the next 30 years and also to support homeowners and public safety i am introducing a resolution for federal legislation a
at philip burton the same year we did the program at balboa. in fact, some of those students also participated in our program as well. i know we've heard a lot about the issues that are plaguing our community. i just wanted to talk a little about some of the solutions as we move forward. one of the main things is really exposure, exposure, exposure. students really want to know how does my learning today relate to my future success. you heard a lot from our community in terms of school to career opportunities, development projects and dollars that are coming into communities because of that. there needs to be a possible option, a viable option where our students understand that the things around them will also provide them opportunities for goals. and, so, thank you for your time. i have more comments, but i felt i had to respond to supervisor cohen's statements earlier. so, thank you. >> thank you, sir. next speaker, please. >>> good evening, ladies and gentlemen. my name is ace washington better known as ace on the case. but i'm here to just really extend my appreciation to my s
in the summer of 2013. similarly, we have a balboa park station area circulation study that's looking at the conflict between the on and off of ramps in that area and pedestrian activity related to the balboa park muni and bart station. and we are looking to conduct outreach with the support of the commissioner's office in the winter of 2012-13 and we'll enter into detailed evaluation phase to have results in the summer of 2013. there's more information available on this online at our website, www.sfcta.org. the market street project is coming up with some interesting events. we call them pop-up events. the first one of them is happening this friday at the food lab [speaker not understood] at the hotel on market street at seventh, friday from 2:00 p.m. -- from noon until 2:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. until 9:00. this is an opportunity for people who use market street, the corridor on a regular basis to be engaged and get a sense of what some of the concepts are being considered for the street in advance of the next phase of our analysis. that also is available -- information is available on
lack of funding. balboa park station is a place that needs enormous investment just to make it functional. and it's really not, although people use it every day, thousands of people. i'm looking at the map on page 4. it has the areas of expected growth and new housing units. 1800 planned around balboa park. i would expect that's not just in that little box area that's there, but surrounding area. in the past 10 years in district 11 we have had 6,000 new residents come in. so, there's growth that's happening. that isn't measured here in what we're projecting for the next, you know, 20 years. that i think is really something we have to take in consideration as we're planning. now, these numbers come from the regional level. we have to look at the reality of the local level as well. what does that mean in terms of our transportation plan? we have to make sure our transportation plan is actually put in place, the need to really up lift neighborhoods that don't have the infrastructure that we need. when you have fewer choices and you have to get somewhere and you have a car, you'
is [speaker not understood] and i am a senior at balboa high school and i am a leader with ymac and coleman advocate. my experience being a black student at sfusd has been a roller coaster ride. one year i had really good teachers who wanted me to succeed and who cared about my education. but the next year i had teachers who didn't believe i could make it. it's not fair because every student deserves a quality education no matter what their background is. i feel like other black students have had worse experiences than me. i have a parent who works for sfusd and people at school like my teachers know who my mother is and it makes a difference in the experience that i had. when you have someone constantly telling you that you can't do something and can't succeed it gets in your head and you start to believe it. like internalized depression, you start to believe that you're stupid and you can't be successful. i do not necessarily think that sfusd has set me up for success. i had teachers who didn't believe in me in past grades that followed me that didn't necessarily reflect me. they reflect
, castro and 18th, castro and 24th, balboa bar and market between 8th and 5th. these were selected carefully to represent types of streets, types of neighborhoods and places where we've received complaints and also places after we had done our mapping of routes and stops we might have expected conflicts and xlaipblts but we vice president so we could get a sense of what is happening. >> so, jesse, let me stop you there, i'm going to have to take issue with these sites, none of which are in district 10. none. i certainly get the complaints. what i shi about showplace square, the design center, there's mission bay ucsf and their busses, there's the rebuild happening over at general hospital, they've got their little shuttle busses running around here and that's just the potrero hill design center. that excludes what happens on game days when i think about bay vau and the busses riding along third street getting on (inaudible) and gooing down to the south bay. i'm really really disappointed with the sites that were selected. once again, i feel left out, the representative of dist
